John Legend has a busy summer ahead of him. On Feb 6, he announced his Darkness and Light tour which kicks off on May 12 in Miami and ends with a performance at the Essence festival on June 30.
His opening act for the tour will be singer/songwriter Gallant, whose single “Weight in Gold” caught the attention of many fans and artists and is one of the most anticipated.Embed from Getty Images

Signed to Mind of a Genius Records, Gallant releases his first studio album Ology which received critical acclaim for the unique sound, feel and lyrics. He has previously toured with Sufjan Stevens for a total of 18 shows and performed at both weekends of Coachella 2016. He also made his television debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
He also paired up with Jhene Aiko to release their first collaborative song, Skipping Stones.
